The Bid by OpenChain to Transform The Supply Chain

Shane Martin Coughlan


OpenChain aims at increasing open source compliance in the supply chain. This issue, which many initially dismiss as a legal concern or as low priority, is actually tied to making sure that open source is as useful as possible and has as little friction as possible.

OpenChain is built to increase trust between organiztions to accomplish this.
